I wanted to wake everyone this morning with a bright creation in Imperial Purple (my Classics teacher at school would be so glad I remembered that this shade was exclusively for roman emperors! lol)
There is a story behind this card as I made it while watching Sue Wilson on Create and Craft a couple of weeks ago. She showed a beautiful card in purple and then one with her Californian die mounted over gilding flakes. I just decided to mix to the two together, whether this is successful is up to you!
I stared by die cutting the background and then hand cutting it into 6 squares. Next I cut six squares of double sided adhesive sheet and stuck them down onto purple card stock. Then it was simply a case of gilding each square and adding the die cut squares. I then cut these out with a purple border and mounted them onto a sheet of gold mirror card.
The remainder was pretty simple as I just mounted the completed piece with the squares on gold an purple before foam mounting them onto a hand cut card.
The sentiment panel is a centre section form spellbinders rectangles however it is hovering over a gold ovals one die cut in gold.
I'm not sure about the Flowers, they were a bargain buy in the U.K. last year however they seem a little big.
